Facilities

UEA’s campus was designed so that everything you need for living and studying is no more than a few minutes away. Our library is open 24/7, providing study, computer, social, and quiet areas. Students can do their shopping, banking, laundering, mailing, and shipping on campus. There are multiple places to eat, drink, and socialise with a lively, multi-cultural community.  

Accommodation is scattered around the campus, each providing students with a shared kitchen and many single or some double-occupancy rooms. International students are guaranteed on-campus accommodation.

Campus features live music events, club nights, film screenings, and an array of student societies to join. UEA is home to the biggest indoor sports centre in Britain, the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts (featured as the Avengers HQ in some Marvel movies), and its own medical center and on-campus dentist. 

Students also have access to support services, a multi-faith center, and careers services. UEA is investing £300 million in facilities for staff and students. In the summer of 2019, UEA opened a state-of-the-art teaching and learning building for Science and Engineering. The Sky House will open in 2022 as the home of Arts and Humanities and some Social Sciences schools.

The information on this page has been submitted by the higher education institution itself, and it varies how frequently they update it. If you want to know more, get in touch and one of our student advisors will answer all your questions!

Across the Pond is the official representative for this teaching institution for selected countries around the world which means we can help you apply to their courses and help with all the documents needed to submit an application. We can help answer questions about their courses and the institution itself as they do not necessarily have the capacity to deal with student enquiries from all around the world on a daily basis. This also means that they can ask us questions about your application and we can help explain if they are not familiar with your grades, academic background or the educational system in your home country. They also appreciate that students who apply through Across the Pond get the help they need, not only in terms of submitting the application and supporting documents, but also with everything needed pre-arrival in the UK, such as student accommodation, visa information, funding information and well as preparing for departure to the UK.
